From the Hew York Tribune June 8.1
The facts in regard to the growing
Winter wheat throughout the coun
try have been hard to ascertain, but
it may now be stated that in some
of the Eastern States and in Ohio,
Michigan, Indiana, 'and Illinois,
much was Winterkilled and Spring
wheat hrs been sown instead. This
is to be said, however, of the plant
of loamy and rather wet soil; on
higher and drier soils, the stand is
good, and on the whole, it looks as
though there would be an average
crop. Spring wheat has been sown
largely, and the prospect is fair. In
the great corn region of the West
the greater part of the crop was
planted before May 20, by which
time it certainly should be planted if
there is to be an average yield. It
is probably safe to say that ? even
eights of it was planted by the 17th,
which certainly indicates most fav
orable progress. In Central Illinois
a great deal was well above ground
at that date, and by this time cul
tivation is well begun. In some
sections there were extremely
heavy rains, causiug delay for
three to six days. It may be well
to note that the rains were so con
stant laat year that the greater part
of the corn in the corn section was
not planted till after the last days of
May. In Wisconsin, Northern
Iowa, and Minnesota the late spring
prevented planting before May 20,
but the wheat crop was growing
finely. It is evident from the
above that we are to have a large
corn crop this year, and if no acci
dent befall it will be the largest yet
grown in America, for the area is
bomewbat increased in the old corn
growing States, while immense
breadths in Iova, Nebraska, and
Kansas are to be added. The wheat
crop in these Suites will also be in
creased. The prospect for potatoes is not
encouraging, for there seems to be a
greater number of its enemy, the
Colorado beetle, than ever before,
and it is already on hand, waiting
for the leaves to appear. The use of
Paris green is general, but it is not
always a preventive, while being a
deadly poison, great care in its use
is required. Hand picking, though
a slow find repugnant process, is
sure, and it is resorted to where
cheap labor can be procured. If this
pest continues yearly to increase,
potatoe culture must certainly de
cline. In some sections of the west
the chinch bug, tlnt great enemyof
small grain, has made ils appear
ance, and is much dreaded; but on
the other hand, the reports from
a great many counties make no
mention of its appearance. Ip
Northwestern Iowa, and in South
western Minnesota, that scourge,
the grasshopper, has appeared in
the young state, in untold millions,
and it is destroying all vegetation.
So soon, however, as its wings are
grown, which will be by the hist of
July, it will away, and after this
various crops can be raiied. It is to
be understood that this pest never
covers tljo whole of the country it
visits, for Ybilo some fields are
made bare, others in ths vicinity
are untouched. Theso are the only
influences reported that adversely
ailect the propjnit.s of the coming
harvest; that i-, through that belt of
country between the seaboard and
the plains, and north of an east and
west line that touches the mouth of
the Ohio river, in 37 latitude.
The fruit prospects in this whole
region are represented as uncom
monly good, and in those sections
especially devoted to fruit the most
ample preparations have been made
by the fruit-raiscrsand the railroads
to promptly send the fruit to mar
ket. In Southerhn Illinois a wide
range of fruit will be produced in
abundance. The first shipments of
strawberries were made on May
12th, aud soon after they were sent
to various northern gitles by the oar
load. Even in thp prairie regions
of IllinoN, Missouri and Kansas,
the peach crop is to be large, which
is remarkable, considering that last
year probably not a hundred bushels
were produced. Now that the yield
of fruit is destined to be so abun
dant, pains should be taken to pre
serve all that is possible by canning,
drying or other processes, for it is
not possible that it shall all find a
market in the natural ripened state.
In the States south of the Ohio
low lands have sufleied immensely
by high water, and even on tnbu
'taries, suoh as the Tennessee, fences
have been carried away and newly
planted corn fields ruined. In the
lower valleys the water Iwgan to
abate sometime ago, and corn and
cotton may yet bo planted, and
abundant vegetables grown. Many
of the planters, however, need
prompt assistance in the way of
seed anil provisions. While these
submerged lands are certainly the
richest, they form only a small por
tion of the whole, and on the up
lands work gops forward as of old,
The rainfall has beou less continu
ous than last year, and cotton haa
been planted in due season. It is
positively stated that more corn
and less cotton has been planted
this year than were planted last
year, but while the cornfields may
be many and large, it is doubt
ful whether less cotton is grow
ing. Iast year was certainly
unfavorable for cotton, and the cost
of working it was excessive, and
yet the cotton crop of 1S73-74 ex
eelled that of 1872-3 by about
600,000 bales. On favorable soil
cotton is growing finely, and speci
mens of the plant have been sent
to the north from Florida that were
18 inches high. No destructive in
sects lnivn yet been reported.
In California tbo largo amount of
last year's grain still coming in is a
surprise. As the winter rains were
sufficient another large wheat crop
for this leading wheat state may be
confidently oxpeoted. Jn Montana,
Colorado, New Mexico, and Ari
zona, the season has been marked
by far loss fall of rain than In aver
age seasons, and only the early
sown grain is promising favorably.
This is well above ground and in
fine condition. By last accounts,
as no rain had fallen since March,
the irrigating ditches had to be
opened. The irrigating canals of
all these territories have been ex
tended, and the capacity for raising
all kinds of farm produce is so
much increased that there will un
doubtedly be a large surplus of fine
wheat to bo shipped to our
Eastern cities. The vast herds of
cattie and flocks of sheep kept on
the plains without other feed than
the native grasses, have come
through the winter in uncommonly
fine order, and the losses in the
herds of men attending to their
business have not exceeded five per
cent, which is less than the losses
in regions where animals are fed
with grain, and hay. This is due
to the absence of winter snows
and to the moisture of last year.
The dryness of this spring is not fa
vorable for the feed to grow for tho
coming summer and winter, but as
the range is almost unlimited, a
greater area can be utilized. In
Kansas the losses of stock are re
ported to have been heavy.
In Great Britain the first week in
May was cold, heavy winds pre
vailed, and previous hard frosts had
rkilled potatoe tops and did some
damage to fruit buds, mo micr
had been marked by absence of
rain and many of the wells were
low. Much the same condition pre
vailed in France. The winter
wheat, however, was uncommonly
bright and promising. The advices
from the interior wheat regions of
Bussia were of lather an unfavor
able nature, and in Hungary a
drouth had prevailed.
The season is yet early, but the
outlook is extremely favorable. Last
year was the "off year," and a large
surplus will now be required to meet
the deficiency. This is proved by
the low condition of stock culturein
the West, and by the heavy losses
east of the Plains. Still an extraor
dinary surplus of farm products
must, according to all appearances,
seek our markets within a few
months. Business men, manufac
turers, and others having influence
and power would be safe in enlarg
ing their operations, that the acces
sion about to be made to the wealth
of the country may result In prosper
ity to the producers. Sound and le
gitimate expansion of credit and ex
tension of facilities for transporta
tion will be needed to meet the
wants of the people, now increasing
both in number and in wealth
The Widow's Protest.
(By Mark Twain.)
Ono of the saddest things
that ever came under my
notice (said the Banker's clerk)
was there in Corning during
war. Dari Murphy enlisted as a
private, anil fought very bravely.
The boys all liked him; and when a
wound, by-and-by, weakened him
down till carrying a musket was
too heavy work for him, they
clubbed together and fixed him up
as a sutler. He Tnade money then,
and sentit always to his wife to bank
for him. She was a washer and
ironer, and knew enough by hard
experience to keep money when she
cot it. She didn't waste a penny.
On the contrary, she began to get
miserly as her bank account grew.
She grieved to part with a cent,
poor creature, for twice in her hard
working life she had known what
it was to be hungry, cold, friendless,
sick, and without a dollar In the
worid, and she had a haunting
dread of sullering so again. Well,
at last Dan died; and the
boys, in testimony of their es
teem aud respect for him, tel
egraphed to'Mrs. Murphy to know
if she would like to have him em
balmed and sent home; when you
know the usual custom was to dump
a poor devil ljlp him into a shallow
hole, and then inform his friends
what had become of him. Mrs.
Murphy jumped to the conclusion
that it would only cost two or three
dollars to embalm her dwtd hus
band, and so sho tocgraphed "Yes."
It was the "wake" that the bill
fur embalming arrived and was pre
sented to the widow.
She uttered a wild sad wail that
pierced every heart, and said : "Siv-inty-fioive
dollars for stooffin' Dan,
blister their sowLs ! Did thim divils
suppose I was goin' to start a Mu
selm, that I'd be dalin' iiivSiicli ox.
I insive curiassities ?"
The banker's clerk said thore was
n.ot a dry eye In the house.
ALL, ABOUT THE WATER WORKS
The central city of the West
Quite proud of late has grown,
Ai d feels it ran no longer wait
A goo t sized pond to own.
The greatest cities of the world
Who wish to cut a swell,
At once erect a reservoir
Upon their highest hill.
We read in the days of Noah
That water wo ks were tried;
The trouble was tbey had no sewers,
And so the peoplr died.
Lt us then reineinler
If water works we try.
To put in sewers good and strong,
And make our streets quite dry
And when the thing is done
We'll celebrate at once.
Then everybody in the town
WIU bay their hats of Bunce.
For all new styles that row are out,
Some City kinds or more.
You'll Cnd them cheap at Bunce's
Famous New York, storo.
